me take you into it. this morning, by far the worst weather all through california. i just read something that at some of the highest elevations in the mountains in california could get up to 100 inches of snow. 100 inches of snow over the next three to four days. crazy. it's raining hard this morning in san francisco to sacramento. san francisco, it's going to be a rainy three days. another big storm coming in saturday afternoon, saturday night. it's going to rain through sunday. you get a break monday, then another storm on tuesday. we have a lot of flooding concerns in the rivers in california in the days ahead. let me take you through the forecast as we go at it. this huge storm in the west, it's not going to move across the country. it's just going to stall out. if you're anywhere from denver to the east coast, don't expect a lot of wet weather this weekend. it should mostly be dry. and notice the temperatures. they're warming up in the middle of the country, and that will head east as we go throughout the weekend. so your friday forecast, really no airport concerns out the
49 out of 50 states. in california, the air force began airlifting more than 60 utility vehicles to new york aboard huge cargo planes, and these workers from alabama pitching in near hard-hit atlantic city. >> they understand the value that comes from being able to serve others. >> reporter: at its peak, more than 8 million customers had no electricity. it's half that number now, and a million more get their power back each day, better than after hurricane irene. on long island we found this crew working 16-hour days, their own homes without electricity, repairing a downed line for powerless residents. >> i saw the trucks down the street. i said, i hope they're coming my way. >> reporter: the crew was, and moments later, lights came on for the first time since monday. >> oh, yeah. >> yay! >> we just got our lights back. thank you, lord. >> reporter: these workers you see here, they are replacing some utility poles that were blown over by the storm. it is slow work. it takes about two hours to remove and replace each one of them, which gives you some indication why it could be a w
on the matter. look at the outcome of prop 30 in california. mr. president, you need to tell speaker boehner that the time for elliptical answers and vagueness is over. tell him if he wants to have a substantive conversation on fiscal negotiations, it's time for him to put his cards on the table face up. ask him to explain exactly which loopholes he would like to close. ask him to explain how those loopholes could be closed without designating the middle class. tell him the time for specifics is now. mr. president, it's time to announce specifics. start with the capital gains rate. make it clear this is an essential part of any deal. capital gains should be taxed as ordinary income. there should be no difference. mr. president. it's time to be tough. that's my view. >> eliot: it was a break up letter read around the world. and it made one former wall street insider greg smith a 12-year veteran and vice president at goldman sachs a household name. in a scathing op-ed published in new york sometimes. while they denied the characterization, and many continue to question smith's motives in going
on in the middle east this week. and bradley is calling us from sacramento california. good morning bradley. are you with us? you're on the "bill press show." >> caller: yes, i'm here. >> john: welcome. thanks for holding. >> caller: that's okay. i would love to be talking about the economy, trickle down. >> john: it is your floor. >> caller: about israel, i think the problem is that israel feels so confident because america is always there to back them up with the full might and force of the american military. and i really think if we threatened or said we wouldn't be there for them if they keep on bullying and killing really palestinian people, that maybe they would back off a bit. at least stop the killing. i'm not sure that would stop everything. >> john: you're the second caller in a row to say the u.s. should cut israel loose economically. don't you think that might have dire economic and political consequences? >> i don't think we would actually have to go through with it. if we told them okay, we're seriously going to
well in places like california where people drive long distances and where a lot of people are very concerned about the environment and want to drive hybrid or electric vehicles. so even though they haven't been so strong throughout the rest of the country, companies like general motors continue to push ahead with these vehicles. here is their newest introduction, which will be on the market in 2014. only available for sale in california and in oregon initially. this is the chevy spark. it is an all electric vehicle that will get somewhere south of 100 miles on a full charge. what's really cool about this vehicle is you'll be able to charge it up to 80% capacity in just 20 minutes. that is a challenge, though, getting the rest of america outside of places like california to buy these vehicles. listen to what gm had to say about that. >> the key now is to sell these vehicles in the same kind of quantity in st. louis and des moines, in the heartland of america, if you will. when you drive an electric car, we're not going to sell this thing on the environmental aspect aspects. these ca
for a minute in the battleground states. what about california? if part of you can't get 45% of the vote, much above 40% of the vote in california is not a party about the future. >> and blaming chris christie is exactly maybe what's wrong with the party. you tell me. he should step above it. but can he? >> i think there are a lot of republicans that need to fight back. and you look at this party, jon meacham, this party has lost 5 out of the last 6 elections when it comes to the popular vote. and they had a great victory two years ago, but the same thing happened in 1994. look historically, jon. 1992, bill clinton, a new democrat wins. two years later rejected by a republican revolution. two years later, re-elected. the same thing has happened again. by republicans who have won. republicans won an historic landslide. we were here two years ago. a lot of unhappy democrats. two years later, they're seen as overreaching and rejected by the american people. >> democrats have shown a greater capacity of the modern era to learn from adversity. and the '94 example is the great one. president bush, i
but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher
is on the phone from california. caller: i think that romney is going to win. i think people can really see that obama is a lawyer and he is a good talker. and he is a good rally year. but the mitt romney record tells the truth about what he can do for america. mitt romney as for the citizens of the united states of america. we have a president that i and 60% of his briefings he keeps talking about how he saved general motors. listen, even if they would have gone bankrupt, they would have come back no matter what. president obama wants to take credit for osama bin laden, when our military men did that. passing the dream act without going through the chain of command, i think he thought he was going to change washington, but washington changed him. he is a good talker and a good lawyer. he could get you off on a murder case, that is what lawyers do, that is all that he is. host: thank you for the call. mark williams says this -- host: the crystal ball contest from "the washington post," has a look at the senate and house, with a prediction that the senate will be provided -- divided this way

companies. i see so many small businesses, i was out in california yesterday, i must have met in four days with eight of our companies, and i asked every one of them, what impact does this have? what difference is it going to make whether romney wins or obama? i honestly believe it's almost a neutral element in terms of the young companies. when they are growing and they are excited and their product is being taken up, and most of them that i'm dealing with are internet or wireless based, it's an environment you don't stop hiring. in fact they have big open to buys. >> so what does affect those companies? what are they looking at beyond their own home base? >> i think the general environment will have an impact. i think that the tone of the top will have an impact. i think my personal feeling, the biggest impact for the kind of companies i'm in are what happens for advertising expenditures. i think advertising and advertising -- >> you talked about immigration policy as well. >> sorry, thank you, thank you. immigration policy is getting the kind of people, everyone is frustrated with the i
